Best Airsoft P90 – Detailed Review and Buyer’s Guide

If you’re looking for a cool and futuristic Airsoft gun for close range, you can’t go wrong with the P90. We will be taking a look at the best Airsoft P90 guns on the market and laying out the pros and cons.

Developed by the Belgian firearms company FN Herstal, it was intended as a replacement for 9 mm Luger submachine guns. Beloved for its compact ambidextrous bullpup design with an integrated reflex sight, the weapon proved very effective in Close Quarters Combat (CQC). As a result, the P90 was quickly adopted by military and police forces in over 40 countries.

It’s precisely these qualities that also make it great for close and mid-range airsoft engagements. On top of that, if you care about style and looks, the P90 is an uncommon gun on the field that draws attention due to its futuristic and unique design.

Here are our personal top picks, starting from the best beginner Airsoft P90 out there. As always, we’ll only recommend those we think are the best in their price range.


Best Airsoft P90 for Beginners

FN Licensed P90 by Cybergun

The first P90 on our list is a great choice for budget-minded players. Even though the weapon is affordable, it packs more punch than much more expensive models. The gun also stays true to the original ambidextrous P90 design, meaning it can be used by both right and left-handed without any modifications.

On top of that, this model is fully licensed by the designer and manufacturer of the real thing, FN Herstal.

Features include:
– Reinforced, Injection-molded
  polymer frame
– Metal barrel assembly
– Realistic mock suppressor included
– Rated at ~ 270 FPS
– Tri-rail for up to 3 accessories included

One of the main pros of this gun is the lightweight, compact design that allows for great maneuverability. Apart from that, the unique Bullpup design results in a longer barrel, improving range and accuracy while keeping the weapon compact and short. Like with almost any weapon we recommend, it also includes a solid metal gearbox, meaning it shouldn’t give you any reliability issues on the field. All that, paired with a solid build and a rating of 400 FPS, means that this is a great choice for beginner and intermediate players looking to use it for mid-range combat on the field.

We would like to note that this weapon is not recommended for small, indoor fields. Many such arenas have a 350 FPS limit on the weapons they allow. Therefore, it’s best to use this weapon on open Airsoft fields for close to mid-range engagements.


Here are our conclusions

If you are on a search for an affordable, compact, and powerful gun that performs well on mid-range fields, you can’t go wrong with this one. 

  • Great Power for close to mid-range fields: ~ 400 FPS
  • Sturdy injection molded frame, metal upper receiver assembly
  • Very lightweight and compact
  • Tactical rail for optics or other accessories included
  • Bullpup design – longer inner barrel compared to other SMGs
  • No traditional iron-sights, reflex sight must be bought separately


Best high-end P90 for CQB

FN Licensed P90 PDW by Tokyo Marui

As the name suggests, this is a model made by the legendary Airsoft manufacturer Tokyo Marui. Even though their guns usually pack a bit less punch, they are renowned for their build quality, accuracy, and range. Being pioneers of battery-powered Airsoft guns, it’s no wonder they’re one of the most respected companies on the market today.

Features include:
– Very high-quality injection-molded
polymer receiver
– Fully Ambidextrous design
– Full metal reinforced V6 Gearbox
– Rated at ~ 270 FPS
– Metal barrel and metal upper receiver
assembly with rail for accessories

In spite of the seemingly lower power rating, according to customer reports, this gun is able to achieve an effective range of ~175 feet when paired with the recommended battery and a well-tuned hop-up. In other words, this gun relies on its well-designed high-quality build instead of pure power to achieve good results on the field. Likewise, the bullpup design paired with a mock suppressor offers a long inner barrel for improved accuracy and range, while keeping the weapon compact.

The lower power is also a plus for those looking to fight in CQC arenas, as many don’t allow 350+ FPS weapons.

In case realism and appearance are your thing, this model also offers great detail and a very realistic design. This is a result of the high-end manufacturing methods used by Tokio Marui, as is the case with many Japanese products and brands.


Here are our conclusions

If you are on a search for a reliable, high-quality, compact P90 that achieves great range and can also be used in CQC arenas, this is a weapon that won’t let you down.

  • Great range and accuracy without crossing indoor Airsoft arena limits
  • Amazing quality and detail
  • Mock suppressor included – longer inner barrel
  • 2 side and one top tactical rail for accessories included
  • Compact design – great for CQC as well as mid-range engagements
  • No traditional iron-sights, reflex sight must be bought separately
